The 1st Visegrad Clusters Congress: V4 companies-regional leaders in the time of 4.0 industrial revolution
On behalf of the Polish Clusters Employers' Association and Partners, we invite you to participate at the 1st Visegrad Clusters Congress (V4 companies-regional leaders in the time of 4.0 industrial revolution) conference which will take place on September 25-26, 2018, in Gliwice near Katowice (District of Silesia, Poland).
1st Visegrad Clusters Congress is the second meeting of cluster organizations of the Visegrád Group in terms of a project Clusters in the Visegrad Group - Challenges of the Future organized by the Polish Clusters Employers' Association and Partners from V4, and supported by the International Visegrád Fund with its headquarters in Bratislava.
During the conference, the Polish Cluster Employers' Association intends to address the problems related to the functioning of clusters in the V4 region, by organizing a meeting which is going to create a space for exchanging experiences, solving problems, and a network of people engaged in the activity of clusters in the countries of the Visegrád Group (V4).
The meeting will constitute an exchange of clusters' experiences. A key subject of the discussions and presentations will be, among other things, the close cooperation between entities from the V4 region, and innovativeness in clusters (research-development cooperation as well as an efficient technology transfer within the clusters), because in the organizers' opinion companies operating in clusters possess much broader capabilities to create innovation than their equivalents from outside cluster structures.
Information concerning the event and an initial program are available here. The organizers ensure simultaneous translation during the conference.
